Specifics: Gnomes and halflings are small creatures. As such, they gain bonuses to their attack rolls, armor class, and hide checks when dealing with larger creatures.
Note: Because they are so small, they cannot use the following weapons: dire mace, two-bladed sword, double axe, greataxe, greatsword, halberd, heavy flail, quarterstaff, scythe, and spear.
- The list of weapons is not exhaustive. Gnomes and halflings cannot use any large-sized weapon (e.g. longbows).
- Gnomes and halflings are also prohibited from using tower shields.
- All medium-sized weapons are wielded two-handed by small races.
- This feat is informative only. The bonuses are due, not to this feat, but to the races' appearances being flagged as small (in appearance.2da), resulting in the standard size modifiers being applied.
